A new “leisure village” community, East Lake Cottages, is on the horizon for the Lansing lakefront, promising a serene living space amidst farm fields and scenic views of Cayuga Lake.

Submitted by the Jonson-Bonniwell family, known for their longstanding contribution to local development, the project plans to introduce 12 cottage units across 16.15 acres at Drake Road and East Shore Drive, according to The Ithaca Voice.


These homes aim to blend modern living with nature, inspired by successful models like the Boiceville Cottages and La Bourgade projects. The proposed village not only focuses on creating comfortable living spaces with open floor plans and 1-2 bedrooms but also aims to foster community interaction.

Scheduled for a phased construction beginning in spring 2025 and concluding in late 2027, the project awaits review and approval from the Town of Lansing Planning Board.
